An exploration from North to South on social, urban and cultural transformation which ended yesterday in Naples as part of the 20th anniversary of the birth of Tirreno Power
The cycle of events entitled ‘The transformation continues’ with the partnership of the Municipality of Naples concluded. The journey with events throughout Italy ‘The continuous transformation’ started in April from Rome to explore with Stefano Massini, Chiara Alessi and Massimo Temporelli the transformation brought about by technological innovations and their impact on life and the way of daily living. Then in May in Savona, with Massimo Recalcati who involved all the participants in a profound journey on the relationship with the transformation of oneself and the influence that fears have on these changes.
In July it was the turn of Civitavecchia, in collaboration with the Premio Strega and the Bellonci Foundation, through on-stage dialogues between institutions and authors which brought to the participants a profound vision of the many aspects of a cultural transformation which is at the same time a consequence and cause of important social changes.

Finally last night in Naples, where ‘The transformation continues’ placed society and urban planning at the centre, with the mayor of the city Gaetano Manfredi, the superintendent and artistic director of the Teatro di San Carlo Stephàne Lissner and Massimo Clemente, director of the Cnr, Riccardo Villari, president of the Idis-City of Science Foundation in Paola Severino, president of Luiss School of Law. On the occasion, the birth of an energy community was announced that Tirreno Power will create in collaboration with the Municipality of Naples, the Federico II University and the Officine San Carlo in the Vigliena district, near its power plant. Thanks to this system, the workshops and the University that are adjacent to these areas will be able to have zero kilometer renewable energy for their activities.
The protagonists of the evening were also the actress Cristina Donadio and the young actors she trained in the Officine laboratories engaged in a play on the legends of Naples. The documentary produced by Upside Production, written and directed by Michele Sorrentino Mangini and Mario Pistolese on the history and industrial, social and urban transformation of Naples, was also screened for the first time, through the places that have marked the development of the city and which to this day they continue to produce energy, innovation and culture.
“It was a journey of discovery – said the general director of Tirreno Power, Fabrizio Allegra – a fascinating opportunity to compare with the territories in which we are present and which we have contributed to transforming. The issues that are significantly influencing our society and our way of life were addressed together with the protagonists of culture and science. These meetings, as well as the energy community that we announced yesterday, are part of a development commitment that we have made with our territories. We businesses must do our part in the areas in which we are present, also by working alongside the institutions, aware of our social role in training skills and to contribute to building an idea of a sustainable future”.
